Revolutionary War Veteran


Although he was born in old Virginia in the part that is now West Virginia, Colonel Charles Martin served in the Maryland militia during the Revolutionary War. His grave marker has long since disappeared. However, the "Abstract of Graves of Revolutionary Patriots" indicates through coordination of several types of records that Colonel Charles Martin is buried in this cemetery. If is unknown if his wife Elizabeth Burroughs (1745-1778) is buried at Fort Martin, or if she is buried at the nearby Burroughs Family Cemetery. This couple had at least 7 children: William, George, Jesse, Spencer, Ann, Elizabeth and Presley Neville Martin. Charles's father was John Martin (1652 - ) was born in Stenmer, Essex in England, and his mother was Sibylla Michelbourn (1685-1790) who was born in Virginia. Let's lift high our tankards of ale as we salute this American patriot.
